"Might & Magic X: Legacy"

Might & Magic X: Legacy is a wonderful homage to the classic Might & Magic series that helped define the role-playing genre in PC gaming. Like the previous games in the series, you get to select and build your own ideal party from a choice of four races and twelve races. If you are a fan of the series and love a touch of retro gaming, you are in for a treat. This guide will cover tons of useful information on the game. As this guide is not intended to be a Might & Magic X: Legacy walkthrough, so spoilers will be kept to a minimum.

The Bestiary

The Bestiary is like the Pokédex of Might & Magic X: Legacy. It provides comprehensive information on all of the monsters you have defeated thus far in your adventure. It can prove to be a useful tool as it details information such as the enemies' skills, elemental resistance and weaknesses.

Liquid Barrels

There are two types of liquids contained in destructible barrels that you will come across while adventuring in the world. The "Pulsing" liquid types grants a 1% resistance against a certain school of magic and the normal colored liquid grants a +1 stat bonus. The bonuses are permanent and do not wear off, so do choose wisely which party member will get the boost.

Fountains are scattered around the Agyn Peninsula and can restore the entire party's HP and MP to full. However, the drawback is that they can only be used once per day.

Dragon Altars

The Dragon Altars in Might & Magic X: Legacy are also known as Obelisks in the previous games. The Heroes of Might & Magic games also had Obelisks which will reveal fragments of a map leading to a treasure. There are a total of seven (rumored to be an eighth) scattered throughout the world and reveals a clue each time you activate an altar. The quest to "The Secret of the Obelisks" starts as soon as you activate an altar (doesn't matter which). These pieces of clues will form directions to a powerful piece of treasure hidden somewhere on the Agyn Peninsula.

Riddle Chests

These chests are scattered around the world of Aryn and require the player to solve a riddle before it can be opened. The solution is simply a single word answer. *Spoilers* ahead, so do not read ahead if you wish to solve the riddles yourself.

What is put on parchment never remains unchanged.
Always truth can be washed away and rewritten,
But the spectre of past words seldom completely fades."
Answer: palimpsest

"What runs smoother than any rhyme,
Loves to fall but cannot climb."
Answer: water

"This engulfing thing is strange indeed.
The greater it grows, the less you see."
Answer: darkness

"Completely round is fairly rare.
Bright and shiny when I'm there.
When I'm not, they call me new.
But I'm old.
Older than you."
Answer: moon

"What is not enough for one,
Just right for two,
Too Much for three?"
Answer: secret

Its not "Magic" (The gathering), that's a card game ^^ It's Might and Magic, a super old school pc game, with MMX Legacy being the latest installment
